After not using my a7siii for about a day, I picked it up to shoot something and it would not power on.
There were no new changes to settings nor any attempts to update firmware. Battery was fully charged.
Right away when putting in a fresh battery (OEM Sony battery), the access lamp will flash. then flash every 3 seconds. Camera doesn't respond when trying to switch on.
Attempted efforts to resolve the issue:
1. I've tried removing and swapping different SD cards, Sony Batteries, and Sony Lenses.
2. I've also tried power cycling the camera by removing the battery for a min, turning it on, holding the shutter down for 30 sec, then powering off, and reinstalling the battery.
3. I've tried connecting the camera directly to my computer, nothing.
4. Plugging the camera into the wall to see if it'll charge the battery, no. Charge lamp doesn't even turn on.
Can't find anyone else with these issues. Feels like the camera literally bricked itself somehow.
Link to dropbox for a video to show the issue.
Camera worked fine one day and then it would not turn on.
The only thing it does is 3 red slow flashes followed by 6 red fast flashes, then repeats.
Makes no noises and nothing on LCD screen. Only flashing light sequence.
Normal nature shooting at temperature about 70 degrees. Normal to average humidity.
No error messages. No recent changes. No recent firmware updates.
Tried new batteries... still would not turn on. Only red light flashing.
I have tried all recommended ways to do a hard reset and nothing works.
Sony was no help either...try reset and send it in garbage.
Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.
Sony told about memory cards supported by the α7S III (ILCE-7SM3) camera. But what about the SF-G series? My Sony cards have no V30/V60/V90 speed tags. No one from the company answers my questions on Twitter. Apparently, another Sony story is repeating itself. The story of a company pushing customers to buy new, new, new...
Just bought the lens. Test it and very happy until I noticed dark upper corners, worse in the left. It only show up at small aperture (eg F11 F16 F22)and focus at infinity. The smaller the aperture the worse.
its worst in my A7II. Less noticeable in the A7RII. No hood or filter attached.
Picture shown is taken by A7II:
any idea what’s the cause? Please help. Can see the dark corner in EVF while composing and focusing
All camera have updated firmware.
